MILFORD, PA — The ARTery November Featured Artist is Ben vanSteenburgh III, whose work will be on display from November 8 to December 9. The public is invited to the artist’s reception and Milford’s “Art After Dark” celebration on Saturday, November 9 from 6 to 9 p.m.

VanSteenburgh III majored in art as an undergrad and attended New York’s School of Visual Arts. His body of work includes book illustrations for nationally known authors, portraits (including one of Bill Clinton and Chelsea, which hangs in Bill’s Harlem office) and fine art, much of which centers on the human form.

Newest members Michele Jaffe and Linda Urcioli will also be showcased at the front of the gallery. Jaffe will be exhibiting her still lifes and landscapes. A very active member of Pike County Arts and Crafts (PCAC) for decades, she has helped the group through the years with volunteer work and leadership. From 1999 to 2008 she owned The Gallery at Forest Hall, showcasing American arts and crafts, in Milford. Urcioli has studied many years with master artist John Philip Osborne. She attended the American Woodcarving School in Wayne NJ, the Ridgewood Art Institute in NJ, and the Old Church Cultural Center in Demarest, NJ.
